    On July 4th my family talked me into going to the lake. I decided to go since I don't get out much. I was swimming all day and really enjoyed it. After I got out I looked at my face and back; I looked like a tomato. The next morning I woke up with my face swollen and in blisters...

    Little Irritations

    So I've just started to ref soccer games for U-8, which is like 7-9 year olds. I also play soccer, so I've gradually gotten this nice toast color right below my knee caps up to my thighs where my shorts cut off--bellow my shins? White. Like death white. So anyway, first day being...

    Hate It

    I use SPF50 and I still get burnt.  I also try to stay out of the sun midday and go in out of it as much as possible.

    Annoying

    Sunburns are so annoying and painful, I don't like tanning because I get burned easily. You can barley move, every inch of you body aches like hell, and you thirsty all the time.

    I'm currently icing my face.

    .. I'm so sunburnt it's not even funny. Even my eyelids are burnt. Stupid me for falling asleep by the pool... You'd think someone would have the decency to wake me up! Urgh. The one time I wouldn't mind someone waking me up and no one does lol
